Accommodation upgrades: $250 to have a private room every night (based on double occupancy). Additional upgrades are available for more luxurious accommodations as well as partial upgrades if a private room is desired some nights, but not every night.
Accommodations: This trip stays at some very unique and memorable chalets/hotels! The first night in Lauterbrunnen and the two nights in Murren are at charming hotels. The other two nights are at traditional mountain chalets/inns (one of which is adjacent to a dairy farm and doesn’t have electricity). These typical Swiss mountain accommodations are in dorm style bunks. You can opt to upgrade to a private room for one or every night. These options will provide you with a truly authentic Swiss experience along with delicious fresh meals.
Payment Terms & Conditions: If you are thinking about signing up for a trip but are not yet ready to commit, we offer a 5 day courtesy hold. To secure your space on a trip, a $500 per person deposit is required and can be paid by check or credit card. The remaining trip balance is due no later than 90 days prior to the start of the trip. If you decide to cancel more than 45 days prior to the start of your trip, you will receive a Carpe Mundo credit that is transferable with no expiration for the amount paid, or we will refund your payment less a $250/person cancellation fee. If you decide to cancel less than 45 days prior to the start of your trip, no refunds or credits will be available.
Single Supplement: Single accommodations are available for an additional fee, based on availability. If you are willing to be placed in a room with someone else from the trip, we will match you with another traveler if possible and waive the single supplement fee.
Packing List: A suggested packing list as well as additional information on travel to Switzerland can be found in our Customer Information packet. Luggage transport is available form Lauterbrunnen to Murren, from Murren to Alpiglen or Grindelwald, and from Alpiglen to Grindelwald (transfers cost CHF15/US$15 per bag per transfer). When staying at Obersteinberg, only a small overnight bag is needed. You can also carry all of your belongings for the duration of the trip if you have an appropriate backpack and have prior hiking/trekking experience.
Release of Liability: We require that everyone participating in a Carpe Mundo trip completes and e-signs an Assumption of Risk/Liability Release waiver as well as a Medical Information Form. You will receive these after you have registered for a trip, and they must be completed prior to your trip.
Insurance: Due to the nature and locations of our trips, we highly recommend that everyone participating in a trip has medical insurance that provides coverage while abroad. Although not required, we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance or a travel protection plan for your trip. We adhere to our cancellation policy, and these plans will protect your trip purchase in the event you cancel under certain circumstances.
